As noted at international news sites, Jiang Zemin appeared on that event which was said to be a rare occasion and months after rumors spread about his health.

According to reports, the 85-year old former China leader was shown in the local TV live for a few seconds as he walked the stage during the start of the special ceremony.

Jiang Zemin, who led China from 1993 to 2003, was seen wearing a dark blue suit and red tie, along with his signature square-rimmed glasses; and was believed to be skinner than before.

Mr. Zemin was only among the former and present Chinese officials present on the occasion, held at the Great Hall of the People and was hosted by China President Hu Jintao.

According to history, the Xinhai Revolution happened in 1911 and overthrew the Qing Dynasty, the country’s last imperial dynasty; and the Republic of China was established later.

China became a communist state under the leadership of Mao Zedong (or Mao Tse-tung) in 1949, with Republic of China on Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PROC) on the mainland are being considered as successors to the Xinhai Revolution.
